Materials saved from the landfill:

fabric

 

Skills you’ll learn:

quilt design, piecing, tying and sashiko quilting

 

Warm your home with a handmade quilt!  Learn the log-cabin technique to reuse vintage and reclaimed fabric to construct a unique geometric quilt top.  In the first session, we will learn how to plan out your color scheme, cut fabric, and begin sewing your quilt top from the center of your quilt with a straight stitch. By the second session the quilt tops will be finished and the class will learn how to choose the correct batting for the inside of the quilt and back the quilt with a large piece of fabric. Also in the second session, the class will learn two quilting techniques (tying and sashiko), and begin quilting their layers together.  With the quilting completed by the third session, the class will learn how to make their own edging tape to give their quilt a finished look.

 

Participants will need to use some time outside of the class to complete steps of the quilt.  Students can attend Perennial’s Community Workshop for free in between sessions, where instructors and materials will be available.

 

Please note that this three-day workshop takes place on the following Tuesdays: February 28, March 7, and March 14 from 6:30pm – 9:00pm.

Tickets are $15. No passes accepted. 

Synopsis: The Royal Opera presents Verdis tragic masterpiece Il Trovatore, a harrowing tale of love, revenge and war full of spine-tingling arias and powerful chorus numbers including the world famous Anvil Chorus. To be recorded live in 2017, Il Trovatore tells the tale of star-crossed lovers, Manrico and Leonora, who are intertwined with the fate of the Manricos mother the gypsy Azucena, who is seeking vengeance for the murder of her own mother by the di Luna family. This will be the first revival of German director David Bschs production, which received critical acclaim for its debut in June 2016, starring both Armenian soprano Lianna Haroutounian as Leonora, American tenor Gregory Kunde as Manrico from the original production, and Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky as Count di Luna. Audiences are invited to experience this powerful opera with its story of love, feuding families and a gypsy curse, all set to Verdis soaring score. Sung in Italian, with English subtitles.
